Besides the rom-coms, I do like to read the odd thriller book here and there. To change things up a bit from time to time. The last domestic thriller I read was The Love of My Life by Rosie Walsh, which I absolutely loved. So, after being a good girl at my hospital appointment a couple of weeks back, I picked up this one as a little treat for myself. It's called The Worst Thing You Ever Did by Karen Perry. 

The Worst Thing You Ever Did by Karen Perry book.


Karen Perry is an author I hadn't heard of until I picked up this book. Apparently, this is her newest release and she mainly writes thriller and mystery books. 

So, what's this book about?

The book centres around Faye, a woman who has her life finally on track. She has a husband who loves her, a good circle of friends and a thriving career in Ireland. However, Faye is hiding a dark secret which only her ex Michael knows. When Faye starts to get threatening notes at work from someone anonymous, she starts to think it's Michael, whom she ends up meeting to straighten things out. Michael vehemently denies that it's him, but is he telling the complete truth?


Faye strongly believes that it's Michael sending these threatening notes even though he's denied it. However, on a writing retreat, Faye's husband Ed befriends a new friend called 'Jamesie' who could tear her world apart. 


How long can Faye keep her secret? 


We do find out Faye's secret as we go through the book as the plot is split into two perspectives. The present-day and back in 2010 when Michael and Faye were stuck in Barcelona because of the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud grounding flights.

Would I recommend The Worst Thing You Ever Did?

This book is one of those books that just fell a little flat for me. The story didn't really grip me until the last 3-4 chapters of the book. Those chapters did have me on the edge of my seat! 

I felt that this book left me with a lot of answered questions. The ending felt rushed as we didn't really get Ed's reaction to his wife's big secret. As I was reading through, I could sense what the plotline was going to be at the end, but it still gripped me in those last few chapters.


As Faye fell pregnant at the start of the book, she went through a lot of unnecessary stress which didn't help by her husband sticking up for his new friend over her on a certain occasion (won't reveal anything here). He should have listened to Faye, that's all I'm saying! Ed is a bit of a wet blanket though. 

 
Even though I kind of predicted how it was going to end, it was a gripping read near the end of the book, which is why I don't totally dislike this book.


*Trigger warning - this book deals with mental health and death.

I'd love to know your thoughts on this! Have you read this book before?
